JVR Out 1-2 Weeks

Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk wasn’t in the lineup today against Montreal and is expected to miss the next 1-2 weeks due to an upper body injury according to the team.

Van Riemsdyk played nearly 18 minutes in Wednesday’s 4-3 overtime win against the host New York Islanders.

He was one of three Flyers scratches. Chris Pronger, who has been suffering from a virus, missed his third straight game. Jamoir Jager (groin) was also a scratch.
